In the past 10 presidential elections, except for 2008, Missourians have voted for the winning candidate. Missouri has traditionally been a swing state, but political indicators are pointing to it becoming a more Republican state. However, Boone County is defying Missouri’s overall trend by voting Democratic in the last election, and the Columbia metro area has been giving more financial support to the Democratic presidential candidate in the current and last election season.
